I was given a Simplicity 7014 S that had a stuck rearend a few years ago. It had a good mower and the engine had been running. I brought it home and put it in the garage and was going to fix it to use. It is the same frame and tractor basicly as my Homelite T-16H. In the meantime I bought a couple more Homelite T-16 H to make one more good tractor out of. Both had been rode hard and put away wet. The second one I got from a fellow in MO. and it had a trip dozer blade with it. It also had a rear lift kit on complete. I have a Homelite dozer blade for my T-16 so I was going to use it for the Simplicity. I freed up the rear of the Simp and almost got the engine running before it got way to cold to work on it in the garage. My BILs GT gave up the ghost so he was without. I told him he could have the Simp if he wanted and could get it running. He said he would take it and in no time he got it running and was mowing with it. He was given a MW (mtd) with dozer blade and bagger system but to use the blade in the winter it is a pain to take the deck off and a pain to put the blade on. I told him he could have the Homelite blade to use on the Simp. Today we took it over and in a few minutes he had the sub frame on and the blade attached, he was amazed how quick it would go on. Put in two pins and four clips and it was on and ready to use. We have gotten about 3 1/2" of wet heavy snow in the last couple of days and it was a bugger to push, but the Simp did it with the aid of my Homelite chains. Here is a couple of pictures of the tractor and blade.
I didn't take any today of him using it. DIdn't have a camera with me. He has done a lot for us in the last 20 yrs so my giving him this tractor was not a problem. My only complaint about the whole deal is that he put a" danged JD seat on it." Thanks. Roger
